Hybrid Incentives

Memorable Adventures Are Our Specialty

At CharlotteJames we take our clients’ visions to heart. Our role is to create a dream trip that will result in life-long memories, stronger bonds and deeper loyalty on the behalf of your top talent.

Surprise and Delight with Mystery Incentives

Challenge-based mystery trips are captivating incentives for those who are seeking a different way of travel—your employees will have no idea where they’re going until the start of the journey, allowing them a chance to wander more freely and engage with the destination in a way they never thought possible. Mystery incentives not only add elements of creativity and resourcefulness to travel by gamifying the vacation, but they also remove the stress of decision-making. CharlotteJames Incentives will help you design a mystery adventure that gives your employees a chance to investigate, navigate and research, and be curious, perplexed and thrilled!

A corporate client approached the CharlotteJames team to create a unique corporate incentive experience for their top performing sales staff. They craved a unique and cost effective experience that would leave a lasting impression.

In collaboration with their wonderful client, Charlene and Cathy jumped right in and designed a Hybrid Incentive to fit the bill. They proposed four very different destinations – one domestic and three international – for the winners to choose from. This Hybrid Incentive package was 5 nights and 6 days which included flights, a luxury hotel with breakfast, a Michelin star dinner with wine pairing and a unique excursion. This one-of-a-kind experience was created for the winners (and their ‘plus one’) only — a true vacation for the recipients.

A truly unique and cost effective offering, this Hybrid Incentive can be scaled up for much larger groups. This approach has been extraordinarily successful and fantastic for company morale!


Another Hybrid Incentive for corporate clients is more of a mystery/adventure approach. This is a Hybrid Incentive where the winners go away for 7 nights and 8 days to a secret international or domestic location. The winners are given a packing list which includes their passport and dates of their adventure.

On the day of departure, the winners are picked up from their homes with a private car and taken to the airport where they are handed flight information and business class tickets. The winners also receive a package outlining their secret adventure details and final destination.

For instance, a Morrocan adventure! A truly exquisite journey that could include canyoning in the Middle-Atlas, sand boarding in the huge Dunes of Merzouga, rock climbing in Todra Gorge and trekking in the Anti-Atlas. Some tamer pursuits might include discovering a winery, hammam experience, enjoying the amazing mint tea and finding orange blossom essential oils in the Medina. The possibilities are endless and can be scaled up or down depending on the number of winners. And of course, the last three nights of the trip can be a total relaxation for the winners or reserved for more discovery.
